     The mission of Virginia Home for Boys and Girls is to serve the community by providing an environment of strength and hope where children and families are empowered to greater success.  VHBG has a legacy of providing quality services to at-risk children and families since 1846. We have touched the lives of more than 20,000 children. Our focus is to parent, nurture and equip children and families for happy, healthy and productive lives. We are a private, non-sectarian and non-profit corporation.  


       Many children who are placed in Treatment Foster Care are troubled. Often abused or neglected, they are more difficult, requiring closer supervision and consistent, practiced care. What distinguishes VHBG's Treatment Foster Care program from others is the strength of the Teaching-Family Model on which training is based.  The T-F Model is strength-based, with an emphasis on teaching social skills. It is also evidenced-based, independently-evaluated and one of only 2 models of care recommended by the APA. VHBG is credentialed by the Teaching-Family Association and is the only training site for the T-F Model in Virginia. 

     Both extensive training, including a 30-hour course and continual inservice, and round-the-clock personal assistance from a trained professional they know are key factors in assuring that VHBG Foster Parents have the right tools to be effective and keep children in the safest and most consistent family possible.

A place where people are on the GROW!!!!! The staff are great and you can tell that they love the work that they do for the kids. So many smiling faces, and if you talk to any of the kids they will tell you that VHBG is a true family environment. Every time I visit the campus, there is always so many new exciting things going on for the kids.
